DECENT DAYS waistcoat

This is a knitting pattern for a traditional woman's waistcoat in a natural color tweed yarn. The stretchy cable pattern shows off your body. The PDF file includes detailed instructions (in 3 different sizes) to make this unique piece of clothing. It has many big photos and close-ups.

This stitch pattern is similar to ribbing, therefore the finished bust measurements are smaller than usual, because some stretch is calculated. Bust without stretching: 80,5 cm / 88,5 cm / (96,5 cm)

To fit bust: 34-36 in / 38-40 in / 42-44 in
Length approx. 50 cm / 52 cm / (54 cm)

This is a very stretchy pattern. When in doubt, please choose the smaller size for a fitted cut. The design focuses on the cable pattern; therefore the armhole and front slope shapings vary in different sizes. In the pictures you can see the waistcoat in size M; the mannequin is a size EU 38.

(Front bands and armholes are finished with crochet-- both American and European terms are given. This is a very handsome piece you'll wear forever-- Ed.)
